by Chloe Ryan Winston
In Peru Paradox, Briana once again finds herself embroiled in adventure and political intrigue as part of a U.S. intelligence courier group en route to the depths of Peru. A sinister political group is making moves to swipe a vacant UN seat. The consequences both local and global are potentially enormous. This time, Briana is operating under the guise of a casual visit with her cousin, a nun, living and serving with her sisters in the villages surrounding Arequipa, the famous White City of Peru. Here, Briana and her group face unexpected dangers in the convoluted political scene in Peru. Now more than ever, our heroine is questioning her dedication to a life of espionage. Is her mission worth leaving the comfort of her Oregon book and travel shop? Is she equipped to handle the guilt that comes with deceiving the innocent convent community?
With danger around every corner, the potential romance between Briana and one of her partners seems impossible at times, but for the occasional glimpse. Still, as she tries to find her place within the world of espionage, Briana perseveres with her trademark wit and determination. Page after page of Peru Paradox is filled with old-school adventure and spiced with modern politics.
